SBS Spring Basket Swap

To celebrate the coming of Spring 2013, the Simply Betty Fan Club did a basket swap in April.  This is an entry for the blog hop to show off all our swap goodies, so hopefully you came to my blog from Sheri's Mamas Scrappin blog.  For this swap, my awesome partner was Trish located in Edmonton, Canada.  

It all started with a phenomenal easel
card with the SBS swap image
There were lots of butterflies and blooms of all kinds - very spring inspired!
Trish then went to great lengths to support my love of travel
inspired scrapbooking with a whole bunch of travel oriented titles,
a small journal that I can take on my next trip,
a cruise oriented acrylic stamp and a fun little album kit.  
The best thing of all that made me squeal with delight
were the multiple bags of Milkfuls....these are my absolute
favorite--a crunch carmel outside with a milky center,
 but the Stork Candy Company no longer sells
them in the U.S.

Trish even sent a new toy
 for my feline companions
Which Cony and Frosty tried to enjoy before
I even took 
out of the packaging!

And to wrap things up, my feline roommates, Frosty, Cony, and Fiona stole the show
 by photo bombing my photo shoot!

 Thank you so much to Trish for going above and beyond to make this an extra special swap!
